Post Newbie on the patch!

Hello Everyone,

I am hoping to start work in Qatar ealy next year just need to confirm and bash out terms etc. Anything I need to be aware of before I come out to Qatar.

Looking forward to social life if nothing else. Most importantly.........can you get bottled Stella out there or is it all local muck.

Regards

Clive

Qatar isn't the same as Saudi or Kuwait: No Sidiqui there! Can't remember seeing bottled Stella, but I've seen cans of Stella before.

He might enjoy the Rugby club.
And the Qube.
Maybe the Harp, might be a bit too posh though.

If in Spain it'll be San Miguel, if in the Middle East, it's those date smoothies!

If you buy one of those fermenting tanks used for making wine, add sugar to the date pulp and let it ferment for a couple of weeks I'm sure it could give you a buzz. whether it would taste nice is another thing entirely..

I have had more than once this comment from visiting business associates:-

Me - ok, good day of meetings etc, fancy a beer then?
Them - sure sounds great
Me - what do you fancy?
Them - I love trying different beers, I'll have whatevers local....
